As we all prepare to reap the bounty of the harvest on this third Thursday of the month of November, the flood of things that I am thankful for rush past my mind like the Mayflower rushing to the New World. Family is an obvious one, friends is another, health, happiness, and love also make the list of blessings to count. And, as I slide the beads of my abacus over one by one while…

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in The U.S. which means a whole nation stuffing their faces with some great food. Along with the turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and the rest of the usual food, many people pair wine with their holiday dinner. While I really enjoy wine, a nicely paired beer is definitely my preferred beverage of choice (both while stuffing my face and watching some football). Looking through old posts on this site, I quickly realized…

Needless to say, I’m a big advocate of beer rather than wine ’round the Thanksgiving dinner table. And I’ve written about it at Thanksgiving time every year the blog’s been around (last year’s post here). And the fact remains, if you want to wax traditional this holiday, than wine has no place at the Thanksgiving feast. The Pilgrims, after all, drank tankards of ale with their meal. It’s even been suggested that the reason the…

As the Thanksgiving holiday looms near here in the states, the Interwebs are abuzz with stories  about what best to do with your beer during your holiday festivities. First, the Dallas Morning News released a list of what beers to drink and when during a holiday party. First, Aperitif: As guests arrive, hand them something crisp and cold, light as air. They sip and whet their appetites, but don’t fill up. The world’s lagers are…

After a few week hiatus, Blog About Beer’s weekly Hump Day Genius Fix is back, and back with a bang. Due to the timeliness of the post, I thought – what better way to celebrate than with “Mr. Frozen Turkey Helpline Guy” (click below to listen). And, did you know that a turkey can drown if they look up when its raining? True story. However you choose to celebrate Thanksgiving (I’ll be doing mine with a…

As the reaping of the harvest comes to an end and Jack Frost prepares to drag his cold finger over the land leaving an icy layer of frost on all that we see, we still have to get through the day designated for taking pause and giving thanks for all the blessings that adorn our lives. Of the many things that bejewel your list of things that you are thankful for, I am sure that…

If you’ve been here before, you already know I’m a big fan of beer & food pairing, especially with holiday meals. So, needless to say, I was psyched to find this fun little interactive menu from Michigan’s MLive.com today: Winter is the time when Michiganians like to “nest” indoors with our favorite comfort foods, to gather with family around the holiday table, to enjoy good food and drink while watching the snow fall outside. We…

Hey Portlanders, I know it’s last minute but here are a few head’s up which were too good not to pass along: First, off Rob Todd and the guys from Allagash will be tapping one of only a handful of casks of Allagash Black out right now at Vignola in the Old Port. The keg will be tapped right around 4 o’clock this afternoon, with plenty of festivities to follow. Secondly, when you’re done at…
